Light Boxes

Tuesday, 8th of November, 2005 @ 7:18am

I was having a conversation with a friend of mine recently and we were talking about ideas that we had that never materialized. One of mine was using a light box as a way of presenting some of my photography. I was going to make my own lightboxes that will have been customized depending on the picture. We happened to be in the Tate Modern coming up on an esclator coming up from the turbine hall. Infront of us was the Jeff Wall exhibit which was all based on light boxes. So I will be exploring using a light box as well as the contact sheets.

below is my favorite from the show

contact sheets

Contact sheets are usually ways that you select what you will use from a roll of film. I am drawn to contact sheets in this increasingly digital world. As we move closer to a film-less society will contact sheets still serve the same purpose. I have also becomeinterested in the way that symbols are used in the marking of the contact sheets.

I have often thought that shooting something in order or recreating the order of a contact sheet can bring new meaning to the format.

Not sure which direction this will go.

Here are some examples i have found

I was amazed to find that the train time tables in Japan used the same symbols that Playstation used for its buttons. I beleive the symbols represent when a train is on time, late, arrived, and or has left.
